Hello! My name is Jess and I teach at Ames High School in Ames, Iowa. This year I am teaching a Freshman Writing Workshop and English 11.
I participated in Teaching Shakespeare Institute in 2014 and the experience changed my life. It was life changing in that it connected me with people who made me want to do better and encouraged me to pursue my passion. The Folger helped make me who I am as a teacher today.
